Did you know we're moving back to Vermont? Movers come tomorrow. The apartment will have paper plates, two computers, a bed and a couch. For four days before we fly home.
Internet right now is through what's known as a "hotspot" on Wendy's iPhone, which, through 3G, provides internet access. Since we have exceeded our limit on fast internet bandwidth speed, we're stuck with dial-up like internet access. Hence, very few updates.
Quick rambles: We will be home late the 17th.
The little dog is starting to show signs of age, his hearing seems gone and the four flights of steps are murder on him. He will be happy to be home to the green green grass of Vermont and four steps to get inside the house.
Wendy quit reading "A Dance with Dragons" yesterday. I don't blame her one bit. Shame on you George "Robert Jordan" Martin. (Please sir, in your next book can you stop focusing so much on peeing, torture, whining and food? Thanks.)
Ultimate Spiderman has been an amazing comic for over a decade with the same creative team. I think it is one of the best series ever. That said let me vent for a second:
Killing Superman: That was a gimmick that bored true comic fans.
Killing Captain America: Same exact thing and like we didn't know he would be back two years later. Duh.
Killing Dark Pheonix: Touching, wonderful story where she should have just stayed dead. Bringing her back ruins that entire arc.
Killing Peter Parker? (Best Jon Stewart Voice:) "How dare you sir!? I repeat! How dare you?!"
Notice I didn't say "killing Spiderman." Unlike warriors like Captain America and Superman who you actually expect to fall in battle one day, Peter Parker was just a kid doing his best to be a hero. He was the geek, the struggling high school student, the one trying to balance a job, hiding his identity from his frail aunt and trying to keep SHIELD off his back.
He gave his life heroically, saving Captain America in the process, but really? Killing a 16 year old Peter Parker.
For shame sir!
